The critical eye of the pharmacist makes its way to “Oneva” products by Tirana Times

This time, the founder of “Secrets of Nature”, Eriona Xhaferaj, tells her story how she got into contact with the products of “Oneva”, well-known internationally for their high quality.

“As I was preparing products with 0 chemicals, I wanted to keep them in proper conditions. After many efforts, I failed to find the much-needed glass equipment’s, so I made my way to Turkey. Before I left, I searched on the Internet a lot. “Oneva” was one of the things I came across. The first time I browsed “Oneva” webpage, it was for me like falling in love at first sight with the “quality of its products.” My conviction was reconfirmed after checking with other brands trading oils. But “Oneva” made a difference in every aspect.

The quality of products starts from the professional and wonderful staff of “Oneva.”

“We do not send our products in whatever place.” – These were the words of “Oneva” Manager showing once again how much importance this company puts in every details from the collection of seeds to the consumers. “Oneva” does not receive the grapes’ seeds from the wineries but from the companies producing grapes ‘juice in order to have seeds free from any possible chemical impact.

This element but many others as well made me feel safe about the oils of “Oneva” brand. My visit in their factory was another moment which convinced me about the fully modern technology on Cold Pressed, applied by “Oneva”.

With a full conviction, it can be stated that the “Oneva” oils have the highest quality of oils on the Albanian market because:

  1. They are produced by a contemporary technology of Cold Pressed by maintaining all the values of the seeds ;
  2. They are 100% Pure , without being diluted with other oils
  3. They are standardized by the highest world food standard of ISO 22000
  4. Lastly, they are certified by GMP

All these elements guarantee a product to be totally qualitative and certified. These are elements which everyone should check in an herbal oil product before buying it.13325740_1614702698857201_3061555018064268092_n

The coconut oil remains one of the most preferred ones in the summer. It contains a lot of SPF and helps in getting an evenly sun- tanned skin. It feeds, maintains, hydrates and protects the skin from various diseases. It can be used as a body cream which not only nurtures but gives to it the exotic small of coconut. It is heavily used from the infants by adding it to their milk formula to the elderly as a way to fight the chronic diseases.

It also heavily helps in avoiding the vomits which is mostly come across during the summer.

Surely all the other oils such as that of black seeds, grapes, pomegranates, figs, nuts, hazelnuts, plums, apricots, sun flowers, olives etc are fantastic. “Oneva” Oils are the first secret of success in my cosmetic products. Without a qualitative raw material, you cannot have a qualitative product.

I feel very happy that God made it possible for me to meet “Oneva” and its excellent people in the right time and in the right moment.”

Ziya BOSTANOGLU, International Marketing Agent for Oneva products:

“I have worked with Oneva since November 2012. I have experienced that Oneva is one of the leading cold pressed oil mills in the world scale with its quality products and innovative aspects. They sell what they produce. They don’t make trading of oils produced by other vendors.

In nutritional oil business there are plenty of producers. But quality is always a question mark. Because there is a though competition in the market. This leads producers to manipulate quality of the products produced. There are nut and seed oils even in European markets with prices cheaper than of that particular nut or seed itself. Therefore, the consumers shall be very careful when buying these kinds of oils. On the other hand, it is a must to consume only unrefined extra virgin nutritional oils for supporting and preserving our health.

What is extra virgin? It means that the seed is pressed only once and process temperature shall never exceed 40OC. This is costly for the producer. Because the yield is lower. There is still an oil residue in the meal. But the quality of this oil residue is not as high as oil quality derived in the first run. It is very interesting that there is no analysis to differentiate this fully from pure extra virgin oil if mixed with it. You shall trust the producer only.

Refining is another subject to be avoided. It enables producers to use a wide variety of seeds for production even much lower quality. But due to high temperatures in the refining process the nutritional essential fatty acids in oil lose their values. Therefore, Oneva is very sensitive about extra virginity of its oils. In addition, Oneva never uses any additives to prolong shelf life of its products.

On the other hand, Oneva is an innovation company. Oneva has launched fig seed oil in last year. Fig seed oil has been produced for the first time. It is the highest Vitamin E containing oil ever known. It has been awarded as one of the most innovative products in Anuga 2015 in Cologne (Taste15) among thousands of competitors. Similarly, Oneva has recently launched fold packs for one time use which is a very new and innovative product. Each fold pack contains 7 ml oil. So, consumers can use it for their daily nutritional oil intake. These packs will be also used for drizzling oils onto our fresh salads. It also help to preserve oil always fresh in comparison bigger packs like bottles. Because each fold pack is for one time use.

Scientists call Oneva’s oils as “precious oils”. The term “Precious oil” is a terminology in nutritional oil world for describing smartly produced oils with full native characteristics. Oneva always try to produce oils with untouched nature. “Untouched nature” is like a motto for Oneva.

Let me share a personal experience about Oneva grape seed oil. If one spoon of Oneva grape seed oil is consumed , it is equal to consuming approximately 165 g of grape seeds. Therefore, if you consume it when you feel getting cold, it supports you within two- three hours time. I have experienced this. How this happens? Because oil has all nutritional fatty acids of the grape seed without any damage of the nature of them. When you look Oneva’s grape seed oil, it has higher viscosity and a native smell in it when compared with similar products. In fact, Oneva’s oils can also be called as “superfoods” with these distinguished characteristics. These kind of oils shall be taken regularly each day in small quantities to preserve the health.

I personally believe high quality nutritional oils are the most important component of “well food” concept. Because what we eat composes of approximately 30-35 % of oils as per WHO. When our oils are replaced with healthy oils, it means that a long way is driven through easily.”

Formula Botanica “Graduate Success Story: Sekretet e Natyres”

Graduate Success Story: Sekretet e Natyres

Sekretet e Natyres

We love featuring our graduates and their exciting businesses with you. You can read all of our previous on our graduates page.  Today we have the pleasure of speaking Eriona Xhaferaj from Albania, who runs Sekretet e Natyres or Secrets of Nature. Eriona has been part of our community since early 2015, when she enrolled with us as our first Albanian student.

Hi Eriona, can you please tell us a bit about you and your background?

Sekretet e Natyres Eriona Xhaferaj

I am Eriona Xhaferaj from Albania. I am born in a coastal city, in Vlora, a wonderful place with stunning natural sights which made me fall in love with Nature since childhood. It is very interesting that even when I was a child, all the time, I wanted to invent new things and when I was 6 years old I tried very hard to formulate a Nail Polish by using homemade products.

Graduating in Pharmacy made me keen on “the Remedy World”. Science strongly convinced me that nature hides many secrets on our wellness. I used to meditate a lot and I was totally convinced that some illnesses have their cure in some specific nature components. Yet, I didn’t have a laboratory to test them.

My second scientific Italian Master Thesis on the “Side effects of Xenoestrogens in Hair Cosmetic Products” determinately guided me towards Natural Solutions. I decided to prepare 100% natural cosmetic products, which in turn led me to an unexpected amazing future.

Where are you based and what do you?

“Secrets of Nature” is a registered trademark. Our business offers different natural products for our clients. The most important products are “0% synthetic chemicals” handmade cosmetics and seed oils. Moreover, the portfolio comprises other products such as hydrosols, essential oils, hennas for hairs, teas, handmade raw apple vinegar etc.

The decision to use the “0 chemicals” slogan in my formulation came because the term “Natural” unfortunately is highly abused from different brands in our country. At ‘The Secrets of Nature’ the seed oils are produced by the highest standard: ISO 22000, they are cold pressed and 100% pure, and lastly certified by GMP. Their exclusivity for our country makes me really proud of the quality we managed to deliver for the Albanian market.

Where did you get the inspiration for your brand?

On one hand the master thesis made me understand the high importance of getting rid of synthetic chemicals. On the other hand, since I am an idealist, it was difficult for me to recognize the finish line of a giant initiative. It was one of my cousins who helped me overcome the fear and made me believe in myself. She told me that she knew my character and education and that she was pretty sure I could formulate wonderful natural products.

Her words made me revise everything I had studied during the university, in order to understand why synthetic cosmetics challenged the natural ones. I started to learn and research how to surpass this exact problem. After different experiments I managed to succeed and I felt like flying in the 7th sky from happiness. The first thought that came to my mind was: Wow, nature is full of secrets. We have to unearth them. So I decided to name my brand Sekretet e Natyres: “Secrets of Nature”.

What type of skin care products do you sell at Sekretet e Natyres and which one is your favourite?

Up to now I have formulated different creams for the face, under eye area, hair and breads, hands; different masks for hair and face, scrubs, lip balms, healing creams for wounds, soaps, anti-fungi elixir, nipple cream, deodorant etc.. It is difficult for me to define a favorite.

When I decide to formulate a new products I pay attention to every detail, from the quality of the ingredients, their combination till the packaging and its design. I prepare products with great love and attention as if they were “new born babies”. Despite of this I may mention some which relate to special moments.

Sekretet e Natyres Snail

1. Nipple cream: I used to suffer a lot during breastfeeding with my first and second daughter. So, when the third miracle came to life I had already formulated and used nipple cream and I forget about the terrible nipple aches.

2. Miracle Hair Mask prepared with spinal cow marrow. It is a wonderful old recipe from an alternative doctor. I worked a lot for this formula because its shelf life was only a couple of days. It works in the scalp for bringing new hair and its mechanism of action is similar to then land feeding the seedlings.

3. Snail Cream: Extracting Snail slime was a special feeling I hadn’t had any experience with the plant world. I feed them, took care of and held them in my hands. They are so nice and in my eyes, they are a crucial part of my working staff. They are so cute and I really feel so satisfied to extract their slime by myself because in the market the snail slime is as liquid as water, but in fact their slime is completely different and of course the effect of the cream is fantastic.

4. Deodorant: this is one of formulas that has challenged me a lot to conclude. The most important achievement was the avoidance of some natural ingredients that are widely discussed about. That tiredness in fact made me fall in love with this product which is totally effective and far away from any synthetic compound.

Which courses did you take with Formula Botanica and how do you use this information in your business?

Getting in contact with Formula Botanica was one of the most important events in my “Natural Journey”. Firstly I didn’t feel alone anymore and it was fantastic to be part of a group of thousand students from all around the world sharing the same goals.

Secondly, I learned a lot of things. Furthermore I have the option of consulting a professional team about different issues related to my my formulations. I completed an Advanced Diploma in Organic Cosmetic Science and now I am enrolling into Certificate in Organic Anti-Ageing Skincare and of course I do not plan for these to be my last.

Sekretet e Natyres Deodorant

What do you enjoy most about running your own business?

Our business motto is: “Secrets of Nature, your health caressed by nature’’ Our team is specialised in offering different advises for a natural well-being and we really enjoy this since it offers a healthier life for everyone. Our commitment is to have quality and not quantity products and to sell them when they are needed. We call this “fair play” and we believe this is essential in our job.

It is my firm relief that it is better to have 1000 regular clients, rather than 1 million buyers that never turn back to our products. Thus, I try to do my best from the formulation of a new product until it reaches the client’s hand.

What was the hardest thing about launching your own skincare range?

In our country, there are a huge number of cosmetic brands and many of them are lobbying for natural cosmetics, but natural ingredients are only a small part of ingredient labelling. Initially, it was difficult to be perceived as a company that operates ONLY with natural ingredients. However, our hard work and positive reviews made customers understand that we are totally different from the others.

Now, we are very glad to hear from our clients that they come to our shop because they strongly believe that here everything is natural and finest quality.

What is the one piece of advice you would give to aspiring skincare entrepreneurs who want to follow in your footsteps?

Being a natural skincare entrepreneurs is not easy if you are not strongly convinced that nature is the most important thing in our mind, soul and health. This key belief is important to resist every challenge in the journey. If aspiring individuals have this and are capable of playing by the rules, then they can go ahead and learn the treasures of nature.
